Am encountering speed issues, errors etc. Not sure if it related to changes with MacOS or my hosting service.. but I am now back to good old Transmit.. and no such problems. Maybe FL needs an update.. who knows.

Although, handy for generic tasks, I consider Forklift 3 in multiple ways underdeveloped. For example, dragging and dropping files from Dock or Finder into Favourites, Devices or sub-folders does not work. Folders don't expand on spring-load. View options (e.g sort order) is not saved. Mouse-clicking to rename a file or folder does not always work as expected.

It has this "preparing" thing before uploads that makes it really slow (several minutes) compared to free options like Cyberduck and Filezilla. With Cyberduck or Filezilla it takes literally seconds to upload the same files.. I fully removed/reinstalled the app and tried again with same results.. Help from support is non responsive even for paid customers like myself. Too bad!

I've been using FTP on Mac's for over 20 years and have own and tried many FTP clients. Forklift is the best, bar none in my opinion. It can almost double as the Finder. My favorite features is using Favorites to open to different folders on different volumes and then Syncing them with one click. **LOVE Forklift**

Was using ParthFinder (PF) for years and move to ForkLift (FL) as PF price sheme changed. After months, I can say it was a great move as FL beat PF on many options. Thank you PF.

I purchased version 3.0 when trying to find alternative of Transmit 4 that is starting to act weird on my catalina and I'm really impressed with the new Fork Lift improvements. I'm a forklift 2 user but I'm just using it only when I need to rename multiple files lol But now I can see that I will use it often. It replaced about 4+ more apps I usually use, such as for ftp, app uninstaller, folder sync, cloud mounter, quick diff etc. It also will likely will improve some of my workflows

Forklift 3.3.9 works great when used locally. But as soon as I work with servers, this program is a disaster. I work in pre-press. The daily work with data archives and therefore also with large archived project folders (image data) are my tasks. Simple things like data search, aliases from the server to local via drag n drop, or even generally opening folders is a pure imposition. Yesterday I tried the latest version of Pathfinder as a comparison. What can I say... Pathfinder performs these tasks with a performance I actually wish for. Too bad, especially Forklift has a very intuitive design and is better in handling. Despite these shortcomings, Forklift has become very dear to my heart over the last few years. All the more I hope that the developer will react very soon concerning the performance. Many thanks in advance.

I originally bought ForkLift as an SFTP client to replace my old Transmit 4 after comparing Transmit 5 and ForkLift 3. Now, I use it all the time as a file browser because it's just so practical and convenient. I also appreciate the support. Good job!
